The Curse of Strahd
The deceased Burgomaster of Barovia
- The Decreased Burgomaster of Barovia
- Father of Ismark Kolyanovich and adoptive father of Ireena Kolyana
- The characters learn from speaking with Ireena that their house was attacked by terrible creatures for weeks on end, and that Kolyan’s heart just stopped from the constant assault and fright. His death was just three days before the character’s arrived.
- The Hooters found a man dead on the road to Barovia from its gates, clutching a letter from Kolyan. It was dated a week before the character’s arrival. It was a warning to all outsiders not to venture into the Valley of Barovia, and a call to abandon its people by containing the evil within by symbols and powers of good from the outside.
